Meet Chie Boyd, another one of the many talented artists that are a part of the upcoming Cosmos show! Chie is a Bay Area native who makes colorful and cute work with a fun and playful attitude! She currently lives in San Francisco where she is making art for mobile video games. If you’d like to see more whimsical wonder you can check out Chie’s website, tinysnails.tumblr.com or find her on Instagram @tinysnails, and you can find her Auriga piece here at Light Grey in the Cosmos exhibition opening October 30th.
For the COSMOS Tarot & Oracle Deck, Chie illustrated a piece for the constellation Auriga. In the deck, it represents the King Card and is an Earth Element.
Long hours - Complex work - Earned Accomplishment
Auriga is often thought to be the Greek hero Erichthonius, who invented the four-horse quadriga chariot. Erichthonius used his invention proudly in a battle that eventually made him King of Athens. The chariot is a symbol of majesty and power, while the goat represents abundance, sure-footedness, and hard work. Combined, there is potential for great success.
In a reading, the upright Auriga card indicates that the earnings will be equivalent to the efforts put in, and innovation will be achieved during a period of hard work. The task may be complex, but upon its completion, both the people who put forth the effort, and those that supported the task will benefit.
Reversed, this card indicates a period of long hours, late nights and the occasional setback during the completion of the work, though the meaning of the card is the same. In both the upright and the reversed meanings, the card indicates that the potential for success is present as long as there are people to put in the time to see it through to completion.
